George Nash and William Satch bag rowing bronze

Londoner George Nash and his rowing partner William Snatch have delivered Great Britain's fifth rowing medal of the Games by winning a bronze in the men's pair.

Satch and Nash only came together at the start of this year after Pete Reed and Andrew Triggs Hodge were moved back into the four.

The pair displayed their potential by winning silver at the first World Cup regatta of the year in Belgrade, which was followed by an impressive Olympic semi-final victory.

The French set the early pace in the final before New Zealand powered clear of the field in the third quarter of the race.
